I have never seen any wild lizards in Ireland. In Switzerland, on the other hand, you only have to look under a rock when it is sunny to find one (or twenty!). I took these pictures while hiking in Oberdorf, Basel-land, Switzerland.
Birds are often very hard to photograph, especially without a zoom-lens. Yet all the same, I managed to take this nice picture of a (female?) house sparrow using my wide-angle lens! The thing is that these birds get fed very regularly with bread crumbs and nuts, and therefore they come up very close looking for food.
A couple of weeks back, just after I finished my Leaving Cert, I went on a trip to London with the Kilkenny Youth Orchestra. Although we were technically in ‘London’, we stayed in the cheapest hotel which could be found. This hotel was a Travel Lodge situated in Uxbridge, which is the very last stop on the outer edges of the London tube network! It took at least 3/4 of an hour each morning to get into the city.
The picture below is one which I took from inside my hotel room in Uxbridge. I find the way that the light shines in rather intriguing!
It’s been a while since I wrote my last post; over the past few weeks I completed all of my Leaving Certificate State Examinations. These exams mark the end of my time in secondary school, and now I can move on to bigger and better things. I can’t believe that I am finally done with school! Now that I don’t have the pressure of the exams squeezing down on me, I can get back to doing some of the things I love: taking pictures, playing music, and working on various technological schemes! Here are some of my most recent pictures;
